JOE WHISENANT The Big Hits of the Trailer Life Show . . . See them now. ACRES OF MOBILE HOMES NEW LOW PRICES By BERNICE L. MAY I, Rancho Rosewood Trailer Lodge, 10326 Rosecrans Blvd., Bellflower, was anxious to have my club room initiated, so I behoved my helpers Bill and Lorayne Dorgan to put on a pot of coffee and get the doughnuts. Once I got my idea across, it was so easy to get the residents of my community together. Tom and Jean Breese offered to show slides taken on one of their many trips when they owned their travel trailer--that was before they became *Mobil-ites. Ruby and George Highsmith, owners of the first mobile home to seek protection within my walls, quickly got in their car and drove down to their friends, Al and Clarice Wilkinson. They also stopped and invited the latest arrivals, Leo and Cindy Kelly. It was wonderful enjoying a trip through Zion National Park and the Grand Canyon with the humans. If buzzing conversation and laughter are the instruments with which humans measure their enjoyment, then I am off to a good start. I'know I will enjoy my role and the humans will be happy within my community.. (Note: "Mobile-lies are the humans who enjoy complete everyday living in their homes on wheels, whereas trailerites only enjoy vacations or trips in their travel trailers.) * * * ELECTION OF OFFICERS was held in the club room on Thursday evening, at Long Beach Trailer Estates, 6541 Atlantic Ave. Roy Hoffman was chosen chairman in charge of club-room activities for the next six months and Marion Blake as secretary and treasurer. Gratitude was extended to Matilda Sapp and Gladys Berry for their success in office for the year 1959. Many are still on the sick list including Mr. and Mrs. Bud Hollins, Mr. and Mrs. Geo. Clow and Adelle Pratt. Matilda and Jesse Sapp spent a few days with their daughter, JoAnn, and family in Burbnnk. Wm. and Mary Reno have taken the train to Oak Park, 111., to visit Mr. and Mrs. Chas. Eastley. Mrs. Eastley, Bill's sister, has been ill. Last summer the Eastleys were guests here at the Estates. * * * CAROLYN WARD MOTORED to Lancaster to visit friends over the weekend. The highlight of the trip was the annual dinner party with the "Nit-Wit" club. The club organized during World War II to knit for the Red Cross. Chip Clark is enjoying the week at the cabin in the desert near Victorville. Another covered dish dinner was enjoyed In the club room. Lorena Bartholomew wilh the cooperation of her committee was credited for the fun had by everyone. Several from the Estates are planning on attending the Mobile Home show at the Great Western Exhibit Center. * * * THE FIRST POT-LUCK dinner of the new year at Park Avalon, 750 E. Carson St., Torrance, filled the recreation hall to capacity and was followed by an impromptu program. The spring-like weather of the past weekend saw many Park Avalon residents gathered on the patio at the recreation hall enjoying the pool and shuffle board courts or just sunning themselves. Our 'flu' epidemic seems to have passed its peak and most victims are now up and about. * * * NEWEST RESIDENTS of Park Avalon arc Mr. and Mrs. H. Knowles who moved in during the past week with their new Angelus from Long Beach and Mr. and Mrs. Abraham Smith from Torrance. Mr. and Mrs. Michale Bieleck of Terry's Trailer Park in Chula Vista spent the weekend with Mr. and Mrs. Merle Herbert and while here purchased a new I960 Golden State 50-foot trailer to be delivered Feb. 4. Mr. and Mrs. Herbert attended the recent open house held at the new Quiet Village Trailer Park and which featured an evenin's entertainment by Lee Keener, better known as "Mr. Music." * * * PROSPECTS FOR THE mobile home-travel trailer industry in the 1960's depend upon additional product diversification and on more mobile home parks. This viewpoint was highlighted by John Moss of Marketing Information Associates of Chicago, who spoke at a luncheon attended by prominent bankers and finance company personnel at the 24th Annual National Mobile Home Show in Louisville, Jan. 16. The affair was under the direction of Leslie Jones, MHMA finance director. "What the industry does in this decade depends upon two developments," Moss stated. "First, the increase in the amount of 'segmented' marketing designed to meet the individual needs of various types of prospects." By this, Moss meant the way in which various consumer needs can be more completely satisfied with units specifically designed and sold to meet those needs. "And secondly, the success of the industry depends upon the expansion of sales in metropolitan markets. This is contingent upon the development of more and better parks." Moss said about 2 per cent of the households now own mobile homes or travel trailers. The proportion owning mobile homes is greatest in the age bracket of 25 to 34. Lowest ownership is in age groups under 25 and over 65. Moss said the industry has barely scratched the surface, and pointed out that ownership of mobile homes and travel trailers is now confined only to a small portion of the population. And he went on to say the industry has done substantially better in thinly populated areas than the heavily populated ones.

With some three-quarters of a million of these homes on wheels now in use over the nation, the number increases by more than 75,000 a year.

With the increased size, transport c o m p a n i e s have sprung up for the purpose of moving the mobile home not only from factory to dealer )ut from one location to another.
